Independent game developer (and former technical lead of state estimation at Skydio) Gareth Cross presents the “Introduction to Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM)” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
This talk provides an introduction to the fundamentals of simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM). Cross aims to provide foundational knowledge, and viewers are not expected to have any prerequisite experience in the field.
The talk consists of an introduction to the concept of SLAM, as well as practical design considerations in formulating SLAM problems. Visual inertial odometry is introduced as a motivating example of SLAM, and Cross explains how this problem is structured and solved.
